Rants ... Winners, The Bos, Obamanomics, Depressed

Winners: The Ommegangsters placed 1-2 recently in Bloomfield -- great news for the team! Damn, now you set a precedent.

The Bos: Probably not malicious but questionable tactics & actions. As a cyclodork, I've read every other person's "take" on the Theo Bos crash & watched the slo-mo vid a bunch of times. Basically the dude effed up in my little world of marginal reality. A. Myerson (fresh off B'kill) had one of the better commentaries on his blog about it.

Obamanomics: Probably not malicious but questionable tactics & actions.....Directing the cabinet to cut $100 million ... ha, ha, ha, ha.... A trillion+ dollar budget and gonna cut $100 mill? Sorry, I was paying attention to the semantics and math. Yes, $100 mill is alot .. to you & me - but not Uncle Sam when we're talking trillions. Let's look at it this way:

$1 trillion = $1,000,000,000,000
$100 million = $100,000,000

So $100 mill is 1/10,000 of a trillion or 0.01% of a trillion (if I did my math right). Now if I asked you to cut 0.01% from your annual household budget, as an average American, you'd be giving up the approximate equivalent of a freakin Starbucks Latte --- ooh what a BIG sacrifice.

Depression: Probably not malicious but questionable tactics & actions -- knowingly taking a banned substance? -- I'm kinda bummed over Tyler -- some might be pissed but I' just find it sad -- maybe a subconcious plea for help hoping he'd be caught?
